Amy's Bread Café at The New York Public Library


The New York Public Library has partnered with iconic bakery Amy’s Bread to open two new café locations: within the Library for the Performing Arts and the historic Stephen A. Schwartzman building.

The mission of Amy’s Bread—to nourish the bodies, minds, and spirits of the communities it serves—makes it the ideal stop for visitors to and scholars of New York’s most cherished research institution.

The menu at Amy’s Bread rotates daily and features an array of hand-made pastries, unique sandwiches, healthy salads, decadent sweets, and more.
